Who knew that growing celery could be so easy?!  Today I am going to show you how you can take celery out of your own kitchen and place it right into your own garden or pot and grow your very own celery.  It really is that simple!  Once you taste freshly grown celery, it is hard to go back to store bought.  This celery is super sweet, yes that is right…sweet!  So are you ready to give it a try?  Lets get started!


The first thing you want to do is cut off the end of your organic celery.  You want to leave about 2 inches of the base and stalks so you have enough to cover in the soil.

Once cut you will have a flower like plant starter. 


Now simply dig a hole in your soil that is about the same size as your celery plant starter.  Place the celery base in the soil with the base side facing down into the soil.


Cover with enough soil to leave only the top exposed.


Water into the soil and watch it grow!  


Here is what my plant looks like after only 1 week.  The picture featured at the top of this post is my plant after 2 weeks.


This post is a work in progress.  I will continue to post and update this post as my celery grows.  It really is super easy to grow your very own celery.  Are you up for the challenge?  Happy gardening!

    I do this too and it really does work! We have a short growing season, so I grow my celery in pots.

    1. hallecottis says:

       @AleasLeftovers I haven’t done it in pots yet, but I bet it works beautifully!

  7. savoringtoday says:

    I am so doing this!  Thank you for posting about this and showing how to do it. I do have one question: how often did you water?

    1. hallecottis says:

       @savoringtoday We had a little rain so I haven’t watered it yet (it has been 3 weeks since I planted it).  Just don’t let it get to dried out.  If you stick you finger into the soil about 2-3 inches and it is dry, then it is time to water it.

         @hallecottis Thanks a bunch!

  13. lom8nance says:

    Great idea!  Thank you for sharing at Rural Thursdays this week.

  14. pennilessparent says:

    Wow, I will be doing this, for sure… I haven’t done it yet, even though I heard you could, because I assumed you could only do it if your celery had some sorts of roots attached, and not the hacked out stuff like we have sold here, but now that you put pics, I’m really inspired to try.

  15. momnivore says:

    I love this! You just saved me the misery of growing celery from seed this year.  I did this with green onion, and it worked as well.  Thanks for sharing at Creative Juice…I featured you this evening, and I’m also sharing this at my Pinterest…
    Have a lovely week!

       @momnivore Thanks Nicolette, I appreciate you sharing this :) ~ Halle

    Interesting, I don’t think I’ve ever had sweet celery. I always thought celery tasted really salty. I wonder if this is a regional difference too, since I’m in the southwest with lots of dry heat. I love seeing how it grew!

  17. pythonesk99 says:

    I think you’ll get lots of leaves – and they are delicious – but probably no stalks.  Celery needs a ton of water and cool weather in my experience, and if you let it go to seed you can gather the seeds which are very tasty.  I have tons of celery coming up in my garden pathways because I let it go to seed.  My chickens love it.

    I have 2 organic celery plants that have been planted in organic soil for about 3 months . I live in central Florida and I watch them very carefully , but they are only about 6in tall and the stalks are about the thickness of a pencil if that. Is that normal or have I done something wrong . I really need to know how to grow this , my husband has been diagnosed with neck cancer and he has chosen alternative treatment and celery helps with pain . Any advise would help.

    Celery is often called a “negative calorie food” but it certainly isn’t lacking in nutrition. The health benefits of celery include: prevent cancer, control blood pressure, weight loss, and so on. Share with you:

    I’ve planted celery this way before and all I got was a huge (3′ tall by 2′ wide) bush and no produce. What happened?
